It’s the underground hipster scene that you would expect out of an event held in Silverlake but it also attracted people of other different cultures and subcultures. That’s the beauty of the event. People get on stage and share their stories, their vulnerabilities. 1) It takes a lot of courage to get on stage and perform, especially by yourself. 2) It takes a lot of courage to open up about your life and share your truth.
I took a Storytelling class at earlier this year (the photo above is from the class show), not knowing much about it but knowing I wanted to do something that frightened me. Through that class, I’ve learned more about my vulnerabilities, what is still too sensitive for me to expose to the world. That’s from the human side. As a performer, I learn more about my style and what I project to the audience. I am so grateful that Storytelling found its way into my life.
